From Childhood Curiosity to Appreciation of the Past – The Thrill of Urbex

Here we have a guest article written by Imogen Reed. From Childhood Curiosity to Appreciation of the Past – The Thrill of Urbex Urban exploration is a relatively new term, commandeered by the curious and brave alike; those whom just have to know what lies behind that decrepit wall or door. However, the spirit of urban exploration is certainly not a new phenomenon. A Child-like Curiosity From our childhood memories, many will remember the local abandoned house, hospital or school […]
